health savings. what does that mean for medicare? break it down in terms of where these savings come from. >> i wish i could. what we don't have here is a lot of detail hanging off this christmas tree at this point. we're looking at a couple of bullet points being released now in terms of the scale of the deal. it gives us overall broad numbers. presumably negotiators would have to go in and fill in details of how they're get that kind of savings. there have been a lot of proposals on health of finding billions of dollars of savings by reducing overhead and other things like that. you've seen the unions come out and say they don't want to see any changes at all that would hurt payoffs to beneficiaries in terms of health care. that would be one of the sticking points between republicans and democrats. we would have to see more detail from boehner's office and how they plan to get to the number of $600 billion. >> broadly speaking, these numbers are similar to where they left it on the table last year during those failed negotiations for the grand bargain. these numbers are simila

increases and some cuts in long-term benefits, medicare, social security, and so on. >> in which case and i hate saying this because it obviously shoots ourselves in the foot. are you advocating turn off the tv, turn off the noise, keep your investment goals focused and don't listen to the vagaries of what's coming out of washington? >> i would not listen to the vagaries of what's coming out of washington nor would i listen to the vagaries of what goes on in the stock market. everything goes up and down each day. and today it's natural gas prices. and tomorrow it'll be something else and day after will be something else. if you could just discipline yourself as an investor. i'm speaking now to the individual investors of our k n count country. don't pay a lot of attention to the short-term noise. focus on the long-term. you'll save yourselves a lot of transaction cost. and just realize that in the markets out there, the financial system is a drag on market return. because we're trading with one another, for heaven's sake. trades don't happen outside of the system. if you trade with one anot

some big reforms on medicare and medica medicare, social security is, any of the retirement or tax issues, but i'll tell you this. i think that all these stories aren't necessarily going lead us to the truth. i personally have a very size way i'm approaching this. the president is supposed to leave for a 21-day vacation in hawaii on december 17th. where he is on december 18th will tell me, and i think the markets will pay attention. i find it hard to believe, and i agree with bill and many, who are very not amused by the house taking their long weekend. i'm sure that the president would have no intentions of leaving until these issues are resolved. i think the market is being kind, but i think it's a timing issue. >> yeah, i think that's a good point. somebody mentioned the other day that the president is planning a trip to hawaii on december 17th. i said, what? they said, no, no, no, not unless the deal is done. we'll see about that. meanwhile, the house goes away for a lock weekend. all right, rob. what do you think? you think we're going to get a deal done by the year end? >> i

hanger down in washington. no wonder the industry is facing potential cut in medicare, which amounts to about $11 billion. as government debates where to cut, the fact is, half of health care spending in general is done through government programs like medicare. it is the austerity cross hairs. the ceo of the new york presbyterian hospital is with us. give me your concerns or feelings as we approach this fiscal cliff. do you think we'll get a deal done, or are you anticipating we go over the cliff? >> we're americans. we have to get a deal done. this is really important, and it's important for health care. at some point in time, we're going to have to come to grips with the fact there's got to be revenue. you have to have some rate increases, in my opinion. charitable deductions are a non-starter for us. that's a big issue. universities, hospitals, we depend on charity and charitable donations. >> let's stop right there because i want to take one part at a time. the charitable deductions, this is one of those deductions within the tax code that's being debated. that and as well the m

that. they do have some specifics on entitlements which include raising medicare age of eligibility from 65 to 67, something talked about in the grand bargain talks over a year ago. they talk about moving to a different inflation adjustment for social security and other government programs. they also talk about reform of medicare to include private sector competition with a traditional fee for service medicare plan. all of those are things that are within the zone of discussion that both -- between the two of the parties. now, president obama went on twitter this afternoon, took questions from the public to try to build pressure on republicans. he got one question from an average person saying, well, will my mortgage interest deduction be threatened by these fiscal cliff talks? and the president used that as a lever to say, that's why rates have to go up, because if they don't, they're going to sister to squeeze middle class deductions. that's the president trying to put pressure on. but i think now that we have offers on paper from both sides, there at least is a prospect we'll hav

you could do here. that's everything from gradually raising the age on medicare. something that the president himself entertained at least in the summer of 2011. and we should look at means testing, higher income earners on medicare. i think long-term and the speaker mentioned this. there could be an adjustment on the social security for upper income earnings. something where they don't get a cut. perhaps it doesn't rise as fast as it would for low income earnings. there's a lot of good ideas on the table, but the problem has been while republicans have been willing to talk about revenue, so far the president has not been specific at all about spending cuts let alone entitlement reforms. >> we've had a number of democrats on the program as you can imagine in addition to republicans. and each time we ask about means testing on social security or medicare even, they're against that saying that that's an earned right in our country and they don't want to give that up. they don't want to set a dangerous precedent that taking something away from people who have earned this right to this

very sympathetic with the defense industry. i'm sympathetic with seniors on medicare. i'm certainly sympathetic with the 100,000 kids who are going to lose their head start. we have got to do something about the deficit in this country. you cannot take the position that, well, pi industry needs to be exempted from this. or the defense will suffer. everything will suffer. we will make do. we're a great country, but the biggest danger to this country is not cuts to the defense department. the biggest danger going forward is a deficit that's going to approach 80% or 90% of gdp. >> if i could respond, nobody is saying that there's any one special interest that can't participate. what we're saying is it would be not the right approach to just take this one slash, giant additional defense cut. this has to be across the board. it's got to be a balanced budget. it's got to be addressing all sorts of issues. there's got to be spending cuts across the board as well as the raising of revenue. the real concern is not reaching a decision and just letting this take place without any direction and

spending on things like medicare, social security, i mean, do you think it has gotten out of control? >> it is scheduled to go up by several percentage of gdp over the next couple decades. that had to be turned around. i think that everyone recognizes that is were spending control has to be focused on if we are to avoid much higher tax rates or an explosive national that. i think it is clear that the republicans are saying we will only go along with higher tax revenue, not higher tax rate, but revenue, if the administration will come forward with some plans to slow the growth of spending. lori: all of this going on against the backdrop where we have had low inflation. the fed has promised these low record rates all the way through 2013. what happens if we do get a situation where the fiscal cliff does involve higher taxes? you have higher taxes, a slowing economy and baby inflation. what do you think, will it start to kick in click select this is a recipe for disaster >> the accumulation of excess reserves in the commercial banks that right now are just parks at the federal reserve.
